Tripollar Apollo uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production.

The Tripollar Apollo uses radiofrequency to heat the deep layers of skin to stimulate collagen production.  The treatment results in contraction of existing collagen fibers and in production of new collagen at an accelerated pace by stimulating the fibroblast cells which produce collagen.  Given that collagen stimulation takes time, patient results typically continue to improve in the months after a treatment course is completed.  Unfortunately, we are still subject to the forces of mother nature and gravity so that future touch ups will be needed for maintenance of results.

This is how TriPollar regenerates Collagen

TriPollar uses multiple poles of radiofrequency energy to effectively cause disruption of the skin below the top layers of the skin and then, as a result, uses the body's own healing mechanisms to promote new collagen formation which leaves the skin tighter and firmer. 

As with all skin tightening procedures, we have not studied the effects for extended periods of time and most of us feel that once one achieves their desired affects, that some form of maintenance therapy will most likely be required, perhaps at 6 months to one year.

Radio Frequency waves heat collagen to reduce appearance of cellulite.

Tripollar uses deeply-penetrating radio frequency waves to heat collagen bundles in order to stimulate contraction of the collagen fibers. The energy delivered also stimulate fibroblast cells which function to increase the collagen layers beneath the skin, resulting in improved skin support structure and tone. Although the results are long-lasting, the natural aging process continues, thus maintenance treatments are advisable to help sustain results.
